How Tropical Storms Can Damage Your Roof
Torn or lost shingles
Although not as strong as a hurricane, tropical storms can still cause a lot of major damage to your roof. Their high winds can cause pressure on your shingles, causing them to uplift and tear away, or even break apart. Additionally, flashing and gutters can be torn away from your roof.
Fallen trees and powerlines
High winds from tropical storms can easily knock down tree limbs and powerlines. If any of those things fall on your roof, they can create punctures and holes through your roof that will then leak, causing major water leaks.
Clogged or damaged gutters
Gutters are an important part of your roof system that helps to navigate water away from your roof. The winds from tropical storms can easily clog your gutter system with twigs, leaves, and other types of debris.
